Now that we're in July, I've officially moved into my second album of the year. But not before finishing off the details of the first:
I actually used a picture from the spring, taken by Paul's brother Tom, because it's rare that I have pictures of the 2 of us together, taken by someone else (instead of a cell phone selfie). Normally I do the cover page at the beginning of the year, but this year I procrastinated (I think in part because I was just sleeping so much in January).
And then there's the end page:
One thing that was nice about waiting to do the cover page is the fact that I managed to tie in the 2 vs 3 elements, which I wouldn't have done had I made the cover page in January. And I figured that I'd really embrace where we are at the moment: waiting for the big change which will fill album 2 of the year.
A friend once pointed out to me that if I do an album, much less 2, I'll be overwhelmed by albums in the long run. She's right, I will be but on the other hand, I always loved flipping through photo albums growing up. Hopefully this is something that I'll share with our son. If not, I'll flip through them alone. It's amazing to me how much I forget in a year and I love how much these albums remind me of!
